Guest Designer – Faye Wynn-Jones

Happy Hump Day!

I am super happy this Wednesday morning as I have the lovely Faye Wynn-Jones from Stamping Fluffnstuff, my amazing Guest Designer for January back on the blog with some more Copic coloured Pure Florals: Peony inspiration.


I am sure many if not all of you know Faye, but without further ado, I will hand you over to Faye to introduce herself and her beautiful cards she has made to share with you today.

“Hi Everyone, I’m Faye and I’m addicted to Copics. (Choklit too, but ssshh, that’s a secret, we’ll keep it between us!) I’m the Copic endorsed Instructor for the UK and I also work closely with the European Copic Distributor and Instructors.

I’m wife, Mum and HuMummy to three (demanding) cats too. With all that going on, it’s not often I get to colour something for fun. So I was delighted when Bev asked me to Guest Design for her. I first came across Bev’s gor-geous stamps at a show last year and I have to tell you it was love at first sight. If you get to any of the shows Uniko exhibit at, you must stop by. The girls are so friendly and the stall is a real feast of inspiration and yummy goodies. You might even spot me in a corner drooling!”


I love colouring an image in monotone. It can be really easy to get caught up in what colours work with what. When you work only in grey, you take that away and can really focus on smooth blending and the light source. Once these things start to fall into place, it is much easier to work with colours and that’s what I did for my final card.


Copics Used…
Grey; C0, C1, C3, C5
Peach; R000, R30, R21, E70
Green; YG61, G82, G24, E70
Make it Colour Blending Card
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great day

Uniko Challenge #48 – Inspired By a Quote with Optional Twist


Apologies for the long absence in blogging over here on the website blog 🙁  After all the paper crafting shows in May & June, the releases and life in general, I think I burnt myself out a little and lost my mojo. Life with The Beans got a little hectic too and then the Summer Holidays began & they finished their first year at nursery!

Anyway, enough of that!

I am here to tell you about the current Uniko Challenge HEREJuly-2

This month we have chosen an inspirational quote, “It’s so much more friendly with two”. A.A. Milne, with an optional twist of making a card for a child.

From the initial outlook it seems quite challenging, but with a little thinking and picking out words in the quote like ‘two’ or ‘friendly’ there are more inspirational possibilities. Here is how I was inspired…


The words ‘two’ and ‘friendly’ finally jumped out at me and inspired  me to make this card! With Background Blocks Wonky Stripes coming back in stock recently, it inspired me to ink mine up.


When my mojo is running low I have a ‘go to’ colour combo, and so I turned to that for this card. I think the wonky stripes look FAB in this combo and the added duo of loopy blooms from Kindness Blooms are the perfect touch.


I used Copic Markers to colour the wonky stripes in after stamping & heat embossing them. I added Nuvo Drops in Dandelion Yellow to the bloom centres and a ‘Hello Friend’ sentiment from Simply Said.

That’s all from me, but be sure to check out Trina’s blog My Crafting ClosetHERE and HERE. Trina is our wonderful Guest Designer for this challenge and has created beautiful cards to inspire you, as has the Uniko Design Team 🙂 All the details and link up for the challenge can be found HERE.


I will be back later this week with more to share, as we start the countdown to the August Release – woohoo! Until then, thank you for stopping by & hanging on in there with me 🙂



Guest Designer Inspiration with Anna Uhras

Hi Dear Uniko Friends! 

Anna here again today bringing you my last (but not least) page made for my GDT spot here at Uniko. I’ve had a blast playing with all the gorgeous stamps, stencils and dies Bev sent to me to create with.

Thank you so much sweet Bev <3

For this layout I’ve made my own background papers using the Paradise Leaves Clear Stamps.  The word “kindness” you can find in the Simply Said II Clear Stamp set. The papers in my layers under my photo are by Heidi Swapp Pineapple Crush collection and my title is also by Heidi Swapp  but from my hoarded stash 🙂

I fussy cut some of the leafs and mounted them with 3d tape to get some dimension. Lastly, I finished my page off with some stitches my by sewing machine and some dots of Nuvo Jewel Drops. I do really love these leafs, they are absolutely gorgeous.

I hope that you have got some new ideas and some inspiration from my creations.

Thanks so much for stopping by here today! See you out in the scrappy world​ <3

Take care! Hugs Anna xo

Guest Designer Inspiration with Anna Uhras

Hi Dear Friends!

Anna here today sharing one of my Guest Designer pages with you. I am so happy, proud and very grateful to Bev for inviting me to be a guest here at Uniko, thanks so much!

This layout I have made using the gorgeous Uniko Equaliser stencil together with some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and the lovely and versatile Simply Said II Clear Stamps.

The papers are by one of the new Bo Bunny collections, Summer Mood, and the title are by Thickers, both from my own stash.

I started up my page making my background using the stencil together with pink and yellow Nuvo Mousse. After drying I builded up my page using a few papers, thread, Thickers and finished my page of with stamping a few words in black.
Sometimes the simple is enough and I think the cool equaliser pattern needs some space without too much embellishments around.
Oh, of course, I made a few stitches with my sewing machine as well 🙂


That’s all for now, see you again for my second and last Guest Designer Inspiration post here May 26th.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Uniko Guest Designer for May 2018!

Hey & Happy Monday!

Today I am super excited to be introducing Uniko’s Guest Designer for the month of May. I am also really happy to be opening the Uniko Guest Designer door again, and I am hoping it to be a regular occurrence, especially during release months!

I am truly honoured to have Anna Uhras from URAscrap. I am sure many of you are familiar with Anna’s work, she is a Design Team Member for CASology, a card challenge blog Uniko frequently sponsors, Design in Papers and Citrus Twist.

Over to Anna now to introduce herself…


I am Anna Uhras ,43 years old, from Sweden. My profession is Hairdresser and I am happily married to my husband Henrik, who is a farmer soon to be for 24 years. We live at our farm and together we have five lovely kids aged 22, 20,18, 6 and 4. I work part-time and then I am a stay at home mom. My family is my heart and joy!
Scrapbooking is my “Me time” and I have to admit that it is also sort of an addiction if you ask my family, LOL! I love all those pretty papers and embellishments and I love to be creative with them. Actually ! can’t live without scrapping!
My first contact with scrappy things was in 2007 by making cards. But it wasn’t until 2012 I discovered layouts and then I never looked back. I think my scrappy style has evolved a lot since I first started. I love to try new things and techniques all the time.
Right now I love to use stencils and mist’s for my layout backgrounds. Colours make my heart sing so I use a lot of colours on my projects. However I feel I have a pretty clean style. My favourite crafting supplies are patterned papers, colour mist’s, stamps cotton thread and my sewing machine, in fact it’s hard to find any of my projects without any stitches. Also I love to use digital cut files with my Silhouette Cameo.
My creations are mostly layouts (both 12×12 and 8.5×11), cards and TN-spreads as well.

I’m so excited, happy and very proud to be your guest here at Uniko Studio, thank you so much Bev!

Take care! Anna xo

Stunning peeks, don’t you think? I sure am excited to see the full projects and read about how they were created.
